Special characters for JPhpExcelReader


I have a special characters problem and none of the previous posts that I have found in this matter helped my problem.

I two files with special characters created from two different computers.

One of them is read by the JPHPExcelReader correctly and the other is not (meaning the cells with the special characters are empty)

My code is the following:


$data=new JPhpExcelReader($file);


Please help if you know the answer,

Thank you
